Come and join Kids Need to Read and The Page Coach at California Pizza Kitchen’s Dana Park location for a day of activities, food, and fun! KNTR will be on site from 11:00 AM – 7:00 PM handing out Highlights for Children magazine and coloring pages to the kids! When you present the flyer to your server or tell them you want your meal to benefit KNTR, 20% of your bill will be donated to Kids Need to Read! The flyer is valid from 11:00 AM – 10:00 PM on the day of the event. How spectacular is that?!

KNTR’s staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, color with the kids and show off The Page Coach! The Page Coach is our mobile conveyor of literary treasure to children living in low socioeconomic neighborhoods in the Mesa/Phoenix metropolitan area and beyond. The funds raised at this event will help to fill The Page Coach with book treasure, provide books to the children of the Navajo Nation, and ship to locations beyond our reach!

Come meet the team, enjoy some tasty food and have some fun with Kids Need to Read and California Pizza Kitchen!

    I am a bilingual special education teacher,and I want to create a library in my classroom to encourage my students to read engaging books on a daily basis. However I have only a few books. At least 90% of the students come from low income families. Most of my students read two-three years below their grade level. I teach k-3rd graders in a resource classroom. My students have learning disabilities, autism, and ADHD. At least half of my students are English Language Learners. I need books to create a library to support my students I. Becoming successful readers.

    Thank you,

    Cora Pina
